the president to help gop nominee mitt romney, mr. netanyahu has said his actions are not tied to the u.s. political calendar. the white house downplays any friction between the two leaders and brushes aside criticism that there was no face-to-face meeting. >> the president has met with and spent time on the phone with prime minister netanyahu more than with any leader since he took office. and that is reflective of the importance of and the closeness of the relationship between the united states and israel. >> reporter: the white house would not say if the two leaders talked about the so-called red line, which of course is a key issue. and no specifics on how they will stop iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. but they did agree to "continue their regular consultations on this issue." wolf. >> dan lothian reporting from the white house. thank you. mitt romney also spoke by phone today with the prime minister. the call came while romney was at the philadelphia airport after making several campaign stops in pennsylvania. that's a state most political experts don't think he'll win. but a
was in poland and got the chance to meet a hero. i came in and he said, mr. romney, you've just come from the united states. you must be tired. you sit, i'll talk. you listen. and so i did. then he said this. and he repeated it again and again. where is american leadership? we need american leadership. where is american leadership? then he'd talk about a region of the world and what was happening in that region. then he'd say where is american leadership? then he'd go to another region and talk about the challenges there. where is american leadership? the world has always looked to us as the shining city on the hill. that light looks dimmer. we keep kicking the challenges down the road and hope someone else will deal with it. that time is now ours. this is the greatest generation that left us this nation so prosperous and so free. now it's our turn. they've held the torch alost for the whole world to see. a torch of freedom, opportunity and hope. they're getting fewer and further between, the greatest generation. they can't hold it quite as high as they used to. it's our turn to grab the
: that was governor romney on the campaign trail in ohio yesterday making his case for a new american economic agenda. 12 hours later, we got our weekly unemployment numbers. the labor department now saying 26,000 fewer americans filed for jobless benefits last week than the week before. that brings the total number to 359,000. but exerts say typically, the number must consistently drop below 375,000, to indicate that highering is strong enough to actually lower our unemployment rate. a big new study meantime provide little hope for the employment picture going forward. a survey of a group of leading ceo's shows they expect to cut jobs in the coming months rather than add them. fox business network's robert gray is live in new york. robert? >> megyn, that's right. it is the business roundtable. this is their third quarter outlook. they are much less bullish if you will on the economy and on hiring than they were just six months ago. as of right now, only about 29% of these ceo's see adding jobs. meanwhile 34% of them say they see headcount declining over the next six months. the reason here is uncert
they may win by three, four, five points, but remember how critical ohio is to mitt romney's math. hard to see how he gets to 270 electoral votes without it. why he's in the state today, president obama is in the state today. they don't spend time in states less than six weeks before an election by accident. >> chris, when we talk about this campaign, how is it possible, karen you weigh in here, how is it possible for mitt romney to win without ohio? there's a very narrow way but he would have to win both virginia and florida, and he's not -- he's not looking so great in those states right now either. >> one of the things -- >> right. >> one of the things that really is clear today also is there's a new mitt romney ad and this shows the real effect of that 47% mistake in the video because here's his first to camera ad, and what he's saying in the ad, is, you know, that he would take care of the middle class. let's listen. >> more americans are living in poverty than when president obama took office. and 15 million more are on food stamps. president obama and i both care about poor and m
would tackle the deficit? >>> ann romney dishes to ja leno about mitt. >> would you say he is frugal or cheap? >> cheap. >> cheap. really cheap. okay. >> do you want to know what he does when he leave the house? he turns off the h water heat. >>o yo knot hoe w we come back from the house, he forgets he has to turn the hot water heater on, cold shers, they're not that bad. >> indeed. good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in new york. dueling messages in ohio where in a few moments both ndides wi beelin ch appearing only about 100 miles from each other but with sharply different messages. as president obama widens his ohio lead in the latest polls, joining me for our daily fix, chris cizilla, managing editor of post politics.com and "whington po" pic reporter karen tu multi. chris, first talk about the polls. how significant is it the double-digit lead in some polls now, cbs/"new york times" poll the trend first in "the washington post" and our wl street jourl/nbwsols weiso moving fairly steadily into the obama camp? >> i would say the answer to that at the moment is yes. the post on mond
, afghanistan, and president obama is trashing mitt romney. let's take a listen. >> would it be disastrous for the country if mitt romney were elected? >> well, you know, i think america is so strong and we've got so much going for us, that we can survive a lot. but the american people don't want to just survive. we want everybody to thrive. we want folks to have a shot at success. and so the question then just becomes whose policies are more lookly to lead us to where we want to go. >> obviously in this campaign season, this is where the candidates are going. they're going to the "the view," the jay leno show" or "the daily show." president obama got rid of bin laden, he end the the war in afghanistan and iraq. it just seemed weird that he had a world stage to show how important he was as a world statesman and here he is talk on "the view." >> are there any big accomplishments that come out of these meetings? he is getting a lot of criticism over this but what's the outcome anyway? >> if you look at some of the issues out there and you saw what happened last week, raging protests in pakis
states. dueling campaign events in the same political battleground of virginia. governor romney and president obama both expected to speak there shortly. plus the obama administration insists sanctions are working to keep iran's nuclear ambitions in check. others have serious doubts. what happens if the doubters are right? in the race for the white house do the polls paint a fair picture? is there media bias? our "news watch" panel weighs in. all new, all live is "happening now." jon: welcoming jenna lee back from italy. i have hope you had a good --. jenna: our friends maya and pat had an amazing wedding. congratulations to them. back to work today. jon: big day on the campaign trail for the candidates today. we have every angle covered. touchdown tore football fans. i'm jon scott. jenna: i'm jenna lee. first the headline today is that the strike is over. the nfl and the referees union reaching what some are describing as a tentative labor agreement. we'll see if it sticks. this after one of the most tumultuous starts to any starting professional sports season we've seen in rec
you say enough is enough. >> dan senor from the romney campaign and others have been on this program saying that the administration is projecting weakness by signaling -- by saying explicitly they do not want to use the military option, that's what president obama said on "60 minutes" this week, saying does mitt romney want to start another war. has the president signaled too affirmatively he does not want to exert military force, that he would prefer to avoid that at all costs? >> well, i don't think one wants to create the impression ta you want to avoid the use of force at all costs. i think you want to create the impression, which the president has done, that the option is on the table that we have the means to act on that option but clearly diplomacy is the preference. i'm sure that governor romney also wants diplomacy to be the preference. the question is, is there enough pressure put on iran to change its behavior. no question you have unprecedented pressure on it economically. the real question also is underpinning that economic pressure with the kind of military options that
roth at the u.n. we're going to be talking with mitt romney supporter senator john barrasso about what he says are the three things president obama needs to do in his speech today. first john berman has got a look at some of the other stories making news. >> good morning. >>> iran's president is trying to clarify what he meant when he said israel should be wiped off the map. an exclusive interview with cnn's piers morgan mahmoud ahmadinejad insists the literal interpretation of his comment is not what he meant. >> when we say to be wiped, we say for occupation to be wiped off from this world. for war-seeking to be wiped off and eradicated. the killing of women and children to be eradicated. and we propose the way, we propose the path. the path is to recognize the right of the palestinians to self-governance. >> ahmadinejad is scheduled to speak before the u.n. general assembly tomorrow on the jewish high holy day of yom kippur. this has many new yorkers outraged. there's even a house resolution circulating in congress condemning the timing of the address. >>> after president obama's u.
